She also wants people to understand we have no idea what life is like behind closed doors. For Bindi Irwin, it was her dealing with her health which included insurmountable pain and being misdiagnosed. When her doctors did realize she had endometriosis, she was encouraged to have surgery. When the procedure was complete, she learned her medical team had removed over 37 lesions.

"Things may look fine on the outside looking in through someone's life. However, that is not always the case," she shared on Instagram. She then added, "Please be gentle and pause before asking me (or any woman) when we'll be having more children. “After all that my body has gone through, I feel tremendously grateful that we have our gorgeous daughter. She feels like our family's miracle."

This incredible 24-year-old hopes to spread awareness and compassion by sharing her story. God calls us to be compassionate and to be the hands and feet of Jesus when and where we can. Even though she's recovering from surgery, Bindi is doing an incredible job of raising awareness and compassion through immense grace.
